Not looking good for #Bombers and receiver Greg Ellingson. Hearing a deal is just around the corner with Edmonton, but teams are making a last ditch effort to get him.

FTR: I'd rather have JSK at $145K than Jefferson at $200+K and use the extra to 'overpay' Chungh.

Me too, if it were an option.

It's gotta be coming at the expense of a bunch of others.

I just reviewed the free agents BC still has and there is a ton of them. Arcenaux, several o-lineman although their o-line was pretty bad as it was last season. Without an o-line Reilly is no better off than that porous line Edmonton had last year. For sure if he signs for 700K per year that affects your entire roster with less money for others. Maybe Ed Hervey  has the green light to spend over the cap this season?

Again, you have to know what the bonuses are. He could make another 20k roster bonus or something crazy.

I'm not sure how he couldn't go over....but hey if it gets you a GC then paying the cap fine might be worth it.   Not exactly sure how big a deterrent the penalty for going over the cap is?

@TSNScianitti
More #CFLFA chatter: Hearing from #CFL sources, Trevor Harris's destination could influence the decision of free agent wide receiver Greg Ellingson. It all comes down to right price for top talent, but Harris and Ellingson are very, very close.

If I recall its a match dollar for dollar over the limit plus possibility of losing draft picks; however; if you treat the draft as a crap shoot and figure most players will hit FA anyways. You might re-adjust your mentality and say hey that is a risk we are willing to take.
